Don't believe the photos the management posted. This was the worst hotel I've ever stepped foot in. While the manager says the place is under construction, this would have to be true for ten years. Exposed wiring. Mold. Cigarette burns on the sheets and furniture. Run!
dear friends, do not book and pay this s..ht. I am sorry for such words but it is exactly what can describe this so called **hotel**/ rude stuff which force to pay in the entrance, and do not show the rooms first. dirty smelly rooms, with no no service at all. they do reparation 24 hours a day, you want to sleep in your room? no way. you will hear drills and shouts of handworker all night and your complains is nothing cause they simply does not care. Stay away from this, I hope they will colaps as soon as possible. so noone has experiance like me ((
I recommend to other tourist never stay in this hotel. Stupid and rude staff, dirty hotel, not giving a proper documents (invoice, cheque) after stay. People, never and never stay in this hotel. Otherwise u will spoil you trip to this beatuful country.
I was in a bit of a rush and emergency situation needing a room for a couple of nights in Tel Aviv. I wish I had had the time to read the reviews. I would have avoided it. The only good things about this hotel are the location (quite central and convenient) and the photographer who took the pictures for the website: they deserve an Oscar. The place is terrible, in shambles: dirty, old, overpriced. A shame for the lovely city of Tel Aviv. Service is appalling, almost scary and certainly rude. I notice from the previous review that the excuse "the credit card stopped working" is just another scam to force you to pay cash. I should have run away when I arrived and there was a lady crying in distress in the "lobby" which is actually just a dirty hole. I was forced to stay because of circumstances and I had to adapt even to the stained bed sheets. Stay away until they receive an inspection, I am sure they would be closed for hygiene reasons.
What a terrible experience from the moment we arrived. The entire place is under construction. When I tried to check in and pay with my credit card they said that they could not accept my credit card so I was forced to pay with cash. Then we get in the room (no elevator by the way) The room smelled like someone had died in there. The air conditioner was leaking, walls all filthy, the bathroom had mold all over and the dust from all of the construction was overwhelming. What an awful place. Nothing like the pictures on hotels.com or any other site. When I asked for a refund only after having checked in 30 minutes prior they said that they would charge us only for one night and allow us to leave without an additional penalty. In a nutshell, they kept $250 of my hard earned money. I have travelled the world and never experienced anything like this in my life. Not even in Africa, the Caribbean or Latin America. This place is horribly filthy! It is a dump. If the board of tourism in this country wants to keep its tourists they need to shut down places like this. This is simply unacceptable.
Horrible hotel, nothing to do with the photos uploaded by the management. Had to leave immediately. Owner claims that the credit card machine isn't working and that you have to pay cash. He tricks u cause he makes you pay everything before you get to see the room. Very dirty bathroom even stinks. Dirty bedding even had hair from previous guests. Dirty towels. Dirty floors. Save your money and stay away! Had to book a new hotel and he didnt give a refund to us. He even yelled to us in another language. STAY AWAY
Talk about a disorganised reception with a strong tobacco smell, unfriendly staff, dusty rooms, old furniture, stained towels, no floor mats and a noisy AC. The only thing that works is the wifi, everything else is a disaster. My advice is simple...STAY AWAY don't trust photos or the website!
The location is very good, and it's the only good thing I can say about the place. The check in started in bargaining about the price (common thing in pre-booked hotels in the west – NOT!), than about the guy telling me that usually he give people like me (who booked not at the hotel itself) bad rooms but he is nice to give me "good" room, and for the room itself… I'll let the pictures do the talking. Don't be fooled by the photos and the good price, the place is a dump. If you are on a budget – take a hostel.
We were told we could check in at 2pm, but we had to sit in their tiny cold lobby until 4pm while they "cleaned the room". While we waited, we were told the credit card machine was broken and they only accept cash, which we didn't have. We've seen this problem in several other reviews as well. When we saw our room, it was disgusting - very thin blankets, construction right outside the window, questionable bathroom. The staff was inattentive and rude. They were screaming up and down the staircase. We had to flee! DO NOT STAY HERE!
Location is great but that's really the only good thing. The hotel is old, access is terrible, no elevator. I had to drag my luggage until the top floor. There's cockroaches and the rooms small, old and without any maintenance. Bathrooms have mold and are dirty. Bad experience, stay away.
